The Voice support programs. New Zealand New Zealand may not be a socialist country, but the welfare system in the country is very wide ranging, offering support for housing, unemployment, health, child care, and education as well. Therefore, New Zealand has many of the characteristics of a socialist country, even while remaining officially free market. Belgium Lastly, Belgium has most of the same social security benefits that New Zealand offers, including invalid and old age pensions. The welfare system causes much of the country’s budget deficit though, and so is considered by some to be a burden on society. List of Socialist Countries with Individual Details Z. Perry, Yahoo!

Voice& Data

...Between voice and data networks the way we communicate has evolved momentously. A data network is an electronic communications process that allows for the orderly transmission and reception of data. Voice Networks are local, national, or international networks used to carry voice or telephone traffic. Cellular network technology supports a ranked configuration formed by based transceiver station (BTS), mobile switching center (MSC), home locations registers (HLR), and public switched telephone network (PSTN). These cells composed provide radio reporting over large physical areas. A landline is a fixed line or a wire line such as, a metal wire or fiber optic cable. A landline is also used to describe a linking amongst two or more points that are comprised of a dedicated physical cable. Landlines work by transmitting voice and data signals through copper wire through electric pulses which means landline will still work even if there was a black out or satellite intervention. A pager is a wireless telecommunications device that receives and displays numeric or text messages, or receives and announces voice messages (Anonymous, 2014). Pagers function as a part of a paging system which contains one or more fixed transmitters. Businesses frequently assimilate paging systems with their Voice-mail and PBX systems, assigning pagers to telephone extensions, and they set-up web portals to incorporate pagers into other parts of their enterprise.

The Perfect Voice

...The Perfect Voice and Talking Proper Rough Draft Is it safe to say that your accent is a part of you? By trying to change or reduce your accent, are you consequently changing who you are? Our voices change all the time throughout our lifetime anyway. Who cares if it changed intentionally or naturally? Carl Elliot in “The Perfect Voice” and Lynda Mugglestone in “Talking Proper” both speak about accents. Although they both explain the effect of accents on class and social status, it is safe to say their perspectives are not so similar. By examining both articles, we are able to get a clearer view on what exactly the authors want to convey in their writings. It is very clear that both Elliot and Mugglestone believe that accent has an effect on class and social status. In his article, Elliot provides several examples to show this idea. Even during his own childhood, while watching other southerners on TV, he realized something. These people sounded like hicks just because of the way they spoke. They had a certain accent that made it hard for anyone to take them seriously. I9t is because of this social pressure that people were willing to go to “the Perfect Voice” clinic and spend $45 an hour to “reduce” their accents. You identify with your accent, so by changing it you are changing the way others think about you. An example that Elliot gives is of a man from Pennsylvania who was running for public office and wanted to reduce his northern accent in order to improve his......

Active Directory

...Project- Windows 2012 Management 12/5/14 Active Directory is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks and is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. An Active Directory domain controller authenticates and allows all users and computers in a Windows domain type network- assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. When a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user is a system administrator or normal user. Active Directory makes use of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) versions 2 and 3, Microsoft's version of Kerberos, and DNS. Active Directory, like many information-technology efforts, originated out of a democratization of design using Request for Comments or RFCs. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which oversees the RFC process, has accepted numerous RFCs initiated by widespread participants. Active Directory incorporates decades of communication technologies into the overarching Active Directory concept then makes improvements upon them. Microsoft previewed Active Directory in 1999, it was first released with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised it to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements came with Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008, and......

Active Listening

...Active listening is listening beyond the words spoken. Listening to a person in order to sense what they are thinking and feeling, beyond the words they say. (Hoppe, 2006) Active listening is an important part of the human service industry. Active listening is used in the therapeutic setting to affectively understand the patient and helps bring solution to their problem. There may be things a patient is thinking or feeling that they are confused or embarrassed about, so they do not effectively communicate them. I find this especially true in working with Children. I spend some of my free time mentoring foster children, specifically 3 girls between the ages of 8-11. When talking with them about “serious” issues, like friend problems or rejection things they face. I cannot be a passive listener while mentoring them. I have to listen to things they are not saying but they are fully communicating. Like shame or embarrassment; when they shift uncomfortably because they feel guilty. They could be talking about a problem with a friend at school and I would have to realize that they were talking about deeper issues, such as trust issues. These are things that they do not verbally communicate with me, but reading body language and voice inflection I can start to understand what they are really feeling, even if they don’t realize that’s how they feel. A while ago I was “having ice cream” with one of the girls because she had just gotten ISS and her social worker asked for......

...Complaint of a Lowell Factory Female Worker (1845) Source: Factory Tracts Number One. Factory Life As It Is (Lowell, 1845). Voices of Freedom, Vol. I, 3rd Ed., by Eric Foner. The early industrial revolution centered on factories producing cotton textiles with water-powered spinning and weaving machinery. In the 1820s, a group of merchants created a new factory town near Boston, incorporated as the city of Lowell in 1836. Here, they built a group of modern textile factories that brought together all phases of production from the spinning of thread to the weaving and finishing of cloth. By 1850, Lowell’s fifty-two mills employed more than 10,000 workers. At Lowell, young unmarried women from Yankee farm families dominated the workforce that tended the spinning machines. Competition among the mills led to a deterioration in working conditions and, beginning in the 1830s, protests among the workers. They engaged in strikes or “turn-out,” and petitioned the legislature to limit their hours of labor. Founded in 1845, the Lowell Female Labor Reform Association published a series of Factory Tracts to expose conditions in the mills. Frequently, as in this account by an unnamed worker, they drew an analogy between their conditions and those of southern slaves. Reading Questions: 1. Why does the female factory worker compare her conditions with those of slaves? 2. Why does she doubt the sincerity of the Christian beliefs of the factory owners? Philanthropists of the......

The Voice

...Valeria Arón The Voice The Voice is a very private poem, written when the author was feeling very lonely because of his wife´s death. His desperation over her death is evident in this poem, through every line he is begging her to return. As we said before he is tormenting himself, he misses his wife. “How you call to me, call to me”, the echoing on those phrases give us a feeling that he is crying for help, in order to be together again, to join her. The author uses the technique of repeating the same phrase several times in order to make it more painful. Therefore we can see how lonely he feels. We can say that he is completely alone because he refers to she as “the one who was all to me”, the author is telling us that she was everything for him. It could be due to Hardy´s treatment towards his wife during the last months of their marriage. Maybe he regrets of something or his behavior towards her. He is filled with guilt inside him, now he implores Emma to appear to him. The author even takes a risks as describes the exactly way in which he would like so her “Let me view you then, standing as when I drew near to the town”. As a conclusion of the first verse we can say that the author is trying to express how his wife changed. He hears her saying that she has changed from who she was before, “you are not as you were “, “when you had changed” the second quote is even more clear because he specific uses the word itself. The author writes the poem using the...
